It also has some horrendous programing, like "Cuties." They keep trying to justify something that seems to be intended for perverts and pedophiles.I will never give Netflix a penny.

Thank you for the recommendation HappyCamper, it looks like it's right along the lines of what I've been saying too - left un-regulated, social media is causing more of our social ills than it is helping improve them as was originally envisioned.

Back in 2011 Chamath Palihapitiya left Facebook and said of his former company, “It literally is a point now where I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.”
Keep in mind that was 2011. Which we now think of as a lost Golden Age.
I’m here to make the case that all modern social, political, and sociological ills can be traced to social media. It is single-handedly responsible for the tearing apart of our social fabric which Palihapitiya so presciently predicted. It’s not “part of” the problem. It is the problem: An insidious malware slowly corrupting our society in ways that are extremely difficult to quantify, but the effects of which are evident all around us.
